Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

-- Big Mike

Make your own decisions based on your own beliefs, and be accountable to yourself.

“If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on it, I would use the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I knew the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes.”

- Albert Einstein

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

more on Einstein

If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.

A little knowledge is dangerous. So is a lot.

It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage – to move in the opposite direction.

In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.

The world we have created is a product of our thinking; it cannot be changed without changing our thinking.

Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.

I have no special qualities, I'm only passionately curious.

He famously called compound interest "the most powerful force in the universe"

simple but effective

What you are is what you have been.
What you’ll be is what you do now.

Don't look for causes. Complex systems don't have causes. There are just patterns and at any point [a system's] state of health can move randomly onto a new path. It is not the particular path that one should think about. You move over an ensemble of possible paths, conditional on how you live and the choices you make. All you can do is to try to influence the distribution of possibilities. --Art De Vany
